Hi,

In SQL 2005 Microsoft introduced DMVs and in-built reports.

I suggest first off, that in SSMS, in Object Explorer, right click on the server, and click on reports, and look for Standard Reports, Performance - Top Queries by Total CPU.

Not strictly what you are after, but may help.

Also look at sp_who2. Connections with a high value in CPU or Disk might have issues and fit your criteria of long running.

Just use the Profiler tool that comes with sql server. Look for queries that have an excessive number of reads. The profiler will also let you browse the execution plans of running queries so you can look for table scans,  etc.
